Alternate Fingering Chart for Oehler- and Albert-System Clarinet

Lower Altissimo Register: C6 to G6

This fingering chart includes both basic fingerings and alternatives that are more appropriate in some passages. Some alternate fingerings are designed for fast passages, while others modify the tone, color, or pitch at normal and extreme dynamic levels. These fingerings apply to all sizes of Oehler- and Albert-system clarinets unless specified otherwise.
